Choosing the Right Questions in the CAT ExamYou cannot deny the fact that the efforts you put in for the preparation for the CAT exam can be really tiring and strenuous. It is also possible that you work really very hard but cannot generate the proper or satisfactory results. To attain the precise result, you would have to take note of some points. Usually, the reason behind your failure can be the bad choice of questions. To know how good your choice is, follow these steps:Ask Yourself-There are some of the questions that you must ask yourself, like how many questions you have attempted that you shouldn’t have or how many questions you have left that you could have attempted? The answers to these questions will tell you how much time you have invested in solving the questions that you shouldn’t have attempted at the first go. Preparing a Table-You can prepare a table and add columns that will indicate how many questions you have attempted in a right way and how many questions were wrong. And, also add the time span that you have invested in solving these questions. Strengths & Weaknesses-Knowing what your weaknesses and strengths are will help you in correcting the right set of questions to a certain extent. When you know that you can master a particular subject, you must attempt all the questions in that section. But, if you are not sure about a particular section, then don’t invest much time in that section. Just by being a bit cautious and by putting a bit of effort, you can master CAT examinations very easily. All you have to do is work hard. demo

 The QA section in the CAT exam is dreaded by students because of conceptually driven difficult questions. Rarely, a direct question is asked, yielding in a low number of attempts. While attempting questions in the mock tests, students end up solving difficult questions, which only consume their time, but also attracts negative marking. Here are a few rules to excel in the QA section.Rule 1: The CAT paper is not the place to carry out R&D, hence attempt only those questions that you’re familiar with. R&D has to be done at home and during the main exam. Scan the question paper to search for similar questions.Rule 2: Answer questions from your area of the interest or topics that you’re extremely comfortable with. If you strong in probability, attempt that question first. However, if the question is lengthy, you can consider leaving it for the end. Never spend more than 90 seconds on any question.Rule 3 : Avoid questions related to geometry and permutation & combination because usually, this section is tricky and confusing. Consider attempting these questions only when you have previously solved a similar problem. Furthermore, solve questions related to maxima and minima using differentiation and such problems are usually easier to crack.Rule 4: Focus on the choices to understand the amount of calculation required to solve a given problem. Avoid answering calculation intensive questions as you end up wasting a lot of precious time.All the best for your preparation and exam!demo
